Our lips touched and a slow, vibrant, loving fog rolls in, caressing us. My arms manage to hold her up while my body hangs weightless from my frame. Each soft kiss suspends time, suspends space, and suspends us—from the ground we were standing on.
How did I go from being madly in love to forgetting you exist? I don’t even think of you anymore and we were gonna start a family a few months ago.
Deflecting an inward reflection obscures reality perception
A thought of you snuck up and grabbed me today.
But it didn’t leave me gasping for air this time.
This time, the memories squeezed me like one of your hugs when you buried your face in my chest.
Thinking about you is starting to keep me warm.
I never thought I would love someone the way I loved you.
You weren’t even the right one for me.
I miss you so much baby
I’m sure you miss you too
One last kiss before the casket shuts
“I love you baby”
I wish I could hold you one more time...but the caskets empty
The woman I love is dead
While the body she left still dances
“Be good to that body, whoever you are”
I gave it my love for years
the pages of my notebook
are bleeding with broken poetry
feelings hiding within
tears falling while writing
painful memories seeping through
vulnerable thoughts can be found too
it's like a vast ocean of nostalagia
a dungeon full of unsung verses
a prisoner of a caged mind
Poem of the day. July 20
The love that shined from your flawless face tore me down and put me back together
Love poured out of those crystal blue eyes and coddled me, strengthened me, soothed me
But after five loving years, I never got to meet your other face
Though we will never meet, I hope she was just as beautiful
